Abstract:

The Space Tactics Bulletin is an official, nondirective SW publication. Its purpose is to update warfighting staffs and units on SWC efforts to effectively employ space assets in support of operations, and provide a forum for information exchange to improve space tactics and procedures. This issue contains two articles about the use of multispectral imagery to enhance warfighting operations. The proliferation of commercial imaging systems and their subsequent improvements in timeliness and quality make this an ever-growing area in the intelligence communities. Imagery such as this is available to everyone. Adversaries can use commercial imagery and other products from space to enhance their own combat capabilities. The article on integrating a space-capable adversary into exercises advances the notion that the first time U.S. forces meet a space capable adversary should be during exercises, not actual combat.
